"Brimming with real and imagined monsters, Brennan delivers striking meditations on memory, time, fragility, and strength. . . . The majority of the characters in this book speak of routine, predictable occurrences. But these tales--some less than a page--are not conventional; they're beautifully strange and often surreal. Brennan introduces fantastical elements that dramatically transform relatable characters and familiar settings into something new, like a family adopting a talking cat. Brennan's collection of compassionate and intelligent fiction is a showcase for a very skilled author."-- "Publishers Weekly"
